Mates Catching Crabs For A Greater Cause!
Thank you Message from the Big 'E'
FOUNDER & CHAIRMAN TTC
Last year’s tenth Anniversary Crab Classic was a fantastic event which raised $20,000 to generate two University Scholarships; supporting two people with a disability to have tertiary study opportunities. Combine that with the additional funds raised for charity organisations and we’ve generated close to $35,000 directly back to the local Gladstone region.
I’m very proud we’ve been able to give back to the local SES, Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service, Boyne Tannum Rotary and the Seagulls Rugby League Club. They are all huge supporters of the event and really pull the TCC Family Fun Day together.
There are many people behind the scenes, but I would like to personally thank Brenda Smith and her team for organising another smashing Ladies Night Out. Also, a big shout out to Kim Cooke for her tireless work on TCC’s Facebook, advertising and the web page.
A huge thank you to the TCC event crew and all our sponsors and supporters. Without you guys it couldn’t happen! A big THANK YOU to all those that attended and dug deep to help a great cause.”
Look forward to seeing you all then! Cheers Big E.
NOT JUST A
PLATFORM TO DISCUSS MEN’S MENTAL HEALTH
The TCC event program is jam-packed with activities, but the Crab Campout is one of the highlights for the TCC members, the guys really hang out for it each year.
Not only do they look forward to the bragging rights for the biggest mud crab caught; the fishing; camping out; fire pits and huge camp oven cook ups. The guys appreciate the time to have a relaxed conversation and opportunity to raise concerns or issues they might be having in their day-to-day lives. This platform really generates a safe environment to foster positive men’s mental health discussions.
The Crab Campout is not only a chance for members to come together and catch crabs, but also to raise much needed funds, support and awareness.
TO OUR COMMUNITY
SUPPORTING OUR LOCALS
Funds raised from the Tannum Crab Classic event programme don’t just assist those families living with disability, it also helps support local charity groups and organisations that do so much for our community.
Whilst last year we raised $20,000 to support two people with a disability to attend University, on top of this amount, just under $15,000 was raised for community organisations that help the TCC Family Fun Day run. The funds were broken down in the following way;
$960 local SES;
$960 Helicopter Rescue;
2,000 Boyne/Tannum Rotary;
$10,000 Seagulls Junior Rugby League Club
These Volunteer organisations give their valuable time to help grow this event and invest in our Community. We love being able to give something back to them.
